"A miraculous oddity. Shot in a single take and broadcast live to 500 cinemas, Harrelson's directorial debut is a unique work that fuses technical wizardry with self-deprecating satire." - The Guardian 

"It's such a technical marvel that what might be lost in Lost in London Live is that Harrelson, a first-time writer and director, has crafted a genuinely engaging, funny, and soul-baring yarn." - Birth.Movies.Death


What began as an unique one-night cinema event, Academy Award nominated actor Woody Harrelson wrote, directed and starred in an unprecedented live feature film event, "Lost in London LIVE," on January 19, 2017, co-starring with Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. This first-of-its-kind film event shot in real time is revisited for the first time in a new touring event. Loosely based on a crazy night full of real-life events, Lost in London follows Harrelson, playing himself, as run-ins with old friends and the law all seem to conspire to keep him from getting home to his family.


Woody Harrelson's rare mix of intensity and charism consistently surprises and delights audiences and critics alike in both mainstream and independent projects. His portrayal of a casualty notification officer, opposite Ben Foster, in Oren Moverman's The Messenger garnered him a 2010 Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He was previously nominated by the Academy, the Golden Globes and SAG Awards in the category of Best Actor for his portrayal of controversial magazine publisher Larry Flynt in Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt.
